Bikinis and Beaches (III) – Molly Brown’s cocktail of elegance and luxury for those great beachcapades

Soneva Fushi – Maldives

Maldives

Slow down, simplify and enjoy life.

This place doesn’t just have character, it emanates charisma. It’s magnetic, like someone who knows himself, knows the world and greets it with a big, sunny smile.

Conscious of both mind and bodily health and yet utterly luxurious, here you slow down, you simplify and you enjoy.

You may snorkel with the resident biologist to better see and appreciate the life on the housereef or go on nature walks through the island, along the lily-lined paths under the thick canopy of mature palms. You might also visit the site where turtles lay their eggs on the beach. The beach itself is, yes, one of the best of all resort islands.

Everywhere the architecture follows nature’s precedent. The materials are warm, tactile and unrefined. They seem to have grown organically, sprouting walkways, pools, balconies, footbridges, pavilions and daybeds. It is not all rustic, it is chic too and all the luxuries are present, discreetly.

So why not don yourself with this hued-and-haute glamorous Rope Back Dress from PilyQ for conquering those shores on the other side of the hemisphere. :)

Rope Back Dress - PilyQ
European inspired ‘cabana chic’ swimwear, PilyQ is known for its classy & elegant designs while still keeping the sexiness intact. Perfect fabrics that have the best texture, one-of-a-kind prints, playful colors and sparkling embellishments make each Pily Q swimsuit a work of art.

When you live slowly, it takes a while to get around to everything you’d like to do. So we want you to have finest quality and best comfort for your sunkissed skin.

Bikinis and Beaches – Molly Brown’s cocktail of beauty and pleasure for those great beachcapades

Shoal Bay, Anguilla

Shoal Bay - Anguilla

Sleeping beauty Anguilla wakes up—a little—at this two-mile expanse of feathery white sand that sparkles in the sun.

Everything you might expect from a Caribbean island, Anguilla has. Gorgeous bays, some of the best white sand beaches in the world, palm trees and the turquoise ocean all around to gaze upon. The wondrous setting is, of course, what draws most travelers here creating the best lazy days memories of sunbathing and swimming. There are some stunning coral reefs just outside the coast, which make it a fine destination for scuba diving or snorkeling. If you’re not that sporty, hop on one of the glass bottomed boats to have at least a glance at the stunning underwater beauty.

Shoal Bay can easily compete with any beach out there and it has a great reef. Don’t miss Gwen’s Reggae Bar, where you can enjoy a tasty lunch, live reggae on Sundays, and a nap on an inviting hammock under a grove of palm trees. Take advantage of the bay’s pure-white beaches, which are rarely crowded, and offer complete relaxation.

And what better outfit to wear than this stunning Cacau Ripple from Sofia by Vix.

2014 Swimwear Trends – The Year Of Free-Spirited Fashion!

Each time a new year dawns, the Internet fashion circuit and all the fashion magazines start speculating about the trends to follow in that year. The dawn of 2014 is no different and the topic too relevant to be ignored. So here’s our take on the 2014 swimwear fashion trends.

Our store, if you have noticed is already stocked-a-block with the latest designer swimwear inventory from all top players. And the common streak in all of the bikinis, swim suits, cover ups and dresses this season is an unabashed neglect for following any kind of trend!

Whether it’s going back to the 70s, reviving last year’s trend, re-inventing a love for colors, prints and embellishments or incorporating different cultural influences into bikini designs. – this year’s swimwear fashion spectrum has it all! Let’s see what’s in store for our beach divas, who wouldn’t be disappointed one bit with swimwear fashion being at its eclectic best!

What’s New? 

2014 Bikinis and Swimsuits
2014 Bikinis and Swimsuits
  • A heartwarming love for naturals! Yes, from working with natural colors to going for natural fabrics, designers are nodding a full-headed yes to going all natural. There are certain brands such as Greenleeswim who have introduced the Little Recycled Bikinis or (LRB) and met with huge success.
  • As 2014 is witnessing no single predominant or prevailing trend in terms of colors or fabrics, the preference for natural tones and pastel shades is perfectly balanced by corals, neons, bright solid tones and digital prints for bikinis, dresses and cover ups.
  • Use of embellishments is back. Although the revival is not that pronounced but this trend sure makes its presence felt in beaded bikinis and dresses with beaded tassels.
  • As for the prints – you can sense a massive influence of different places, technology and the unabashed acceptance of and openness to the flea market vogue around the world.

This year’s beach and resortwear is inspired by summer, sea, parties and all things fun! There has never been more variety than what each designer is offering this season.

Carried Over from the Past

 

2014 Cover Ups and Dresses
  • Some things never go out of fashion and why should they, especially when they are crochet or bustiers. Do we see a smile there? We knew you would love crochet dresses and sexy bustier bikini tops!
  • Apart from crochet, the knotty macramé makes a powerful come back on innovative monokinis and bikini designs.
  • Cover ups, maxi dresses and trendy beach pants are also ruling the runways and will be the hot things this season.

There’s a new entrant this season – Activewear – the stylish Fox swimwear for sporty gals who want the comfort, functionality and oodles of style threaded altogether in their swimwear –

Nothing is same as it was; yet the more things change, the more they remain the same that is: sexy, sensual, stunning, full of character and fabulous!

Is 2014 About Bikinis or Cover Ups?

January is almost over but still you can sense the Euphoria in the air. Especially since the beach season is fast approaching! We have all seen the latest designs and collections and are now ready to try them on at the beach and see what happens!

The 2014 swimwear collections have mixed bright colors, bold cuts and silhouettes with funky, vibrant prints, incorporating embellishments into the designs and creating some really amazing bikinis. But another trend has emerged. And that is of the cover-up taking the center stage than ever before.

Earlier cover ups were just an accessory and one did not see much innovation in them. But now, cover ups have become haute couture with more and more designers paying more attention to the swim cover up. There are Kaftans, embellished cover ups, beach dress cover ups in bright hues and bold whimsical prints.

But is 2014 the year of the bikini or is the spotlight going to shine on the cover ups? The bikini is and will always remain evergreen, with slight changes in the designs or styles. But 2014 is definitely the year of the cover ups. We are seeing a lot more versatility in the designs, the flowy fabrics used, the silhouettes to even the length and the sexy cuts. The newest addition are cover up dresses which can even double as an evening dress for the hot date you scored in the beach! The cover up is evolving and we’re loving it!

Browse the 2014 collection of beach dresses at Molly Brown’s and get ready to sizzle more as you cover up!
